I’m thrilled to share Selene’s amazing story as this month’s Beauty Detox True Beauty Transformation story! Selene, a mother of two from Florida, constantly felt uncomfortable and unhappy for years, but decided to take control of her health and once she found The Beauty Detox Solution. Fast forward to now, where she has more energy than ever, is 34 pounds lighter, and is glowing all around!
How long have you been following the Beauty Detox philosophy? Was it easy to incorporate it into your lifestyle?
I’ve been doing the Beauty Detox for about a year now. I was so ready to make a positive change in my life and have a healthy digestive track. I’ve always had issues being backed up and feeling bloated, especially after taking fish oil capsules, yuck! So when I ran into Kimberly Snyder’s book I was super excited to try it out! So glad I did. I thought I had to live with that horrible discomfort for the rest of my life…. Kimberly’s advice was not complicated to follow. I did require me to make a few changes in my diet. I had to educate myself in eating healthy. I learned to eat healing foods, or “Real Foods”. I was determined to make a change and followed through with it. It became easier and easier as the weeks went by and I enjoyed all the healthy foods Kimberly recommended. Especially, the green smoothies!
What is your daily regimen? Give us an example of a typical meal plan and exercise routines.
For breakfast: I make a Glowing Green Smoothie. Then I practice yoga for an hour and workout for another hour and a half (lift weights, core strengthening, planks, squats, leg raises and cardio with weight ball.) Drink plenty of water. For lunch: I make a kale salad or collard wrap and drink water. Snack: I make a green juice or if I have a sweet tooth, I make a watermelon slush with organic almond milk… Drink plenty of water! Dinner: I make a large live enzymes salad with quinoa and drink water.
How do you feel after adopting the Beauty Detox lifestyle? What changes have you experienced?
I’m a petite girl, 5 feet 1 inch tall and my weight was 139 pounds before I decided to try the Beauty Detox. I felt horrible because I was really batting two issues: weight and not being regular… Now, I feel great! I’ve lost 34 pounds!! Went from weighing 139 pounds to 105 pounds. My skin is glowing, nails are growing like crazy, hair doesn’t shed, and is super shiny. My energy level is at its highest it has ever been. Most importantly, I have my digestive track functioning properly. I haven’t felt this happy in a very long time.
How has this impacted your outlook on life?
It’s amazing how you can change your overall health by eating clean. It’s really true, you are what you eat!!! This journey has impacted my life in so many positive ways. No regrets!!
What words of encouragement do you have for others in the Beauty Detox Community?
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway (my favorite quote) I read it to myself every time I felt discouraged… Take it day by day, if you fall back into your old bad eating habits, remember tomorrow is always a new day and a good one to start over again… Try to turn your bad habits into good habits it becomes discipline!! With discipline and will power you’re UNSTOPPABLE!! Nothing worth having comes easy, fight for it every damn day!!! Never give up!!! GO SELENE! We are all here, cheering you on.
